Oh man… the Jim West thing just gets weirder and weirder. It’s no surprise considering all the publicity, that new allegations have emerged against the Spokane mayor… but it’s a little odd that one of the latest details was offered by West himself. According to Spokane City Councilwoman Cherie Rodgers, West confessed to wanking off in his City Hall office while visiting gay chat rooms online.
Rodgers said West acknowledged using a city computer to engage in Internet sex in his mayoral office.
“He said, we masturbated,” Rodgers said. “He called it “mutual masturbation’ … a term I hadn’t really heard before,” she said.
“I told him, your private life is your private life. I just have a hard time with your using city computers. He said, I know, I know,” she said.
Um… that’s a little too much information.
I can’t imagine this guy can continue to resist calls for his resignation, and I’m guessing the new mayor’s first official act will be to order a new keyboard.
Online Chat with Spokesman-Review Editor:
And I’m guessing it’s the non-gay-sex kind. Anyway, what with all the attention surrounding the Jim West story, and the controversial way they caught him online with his pants down (apparently, quite literally,) you might have a question or two for Spokesman-Review Editor Steven A. Smith. The online chat begins today at 3 p.m., but you can submit your questions ahead of time here.
